Prerequisite: Introductory Microeconomics
Course Description: The field of economics is becoming increasingly computational. This means if you want to be competitive in the job market you must learn how to think in terms of computational algorithms and be able to program these algorithms on a computer. In this course, you will learn how to program and study standard economics models using a ubiquitous, general purpose, programming language called Python. You will also be introduced to the scientific programming stack, including NumPy, SymPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, and Statsmodels. Students will be graded on two major projects: risk preferences and sequential decision making under uncertainty. This course assumes you have no previous programming experience.
